Julie “Jewel” Permut, Lic. Ac., Dipl. OM
Born into to a family of healers, Jewel discovered she had the gift of healing at a young age. Inspired by the ancient wisdom traditions of the East, she trained in Japanese martial arts as a way to build strength, confidence, and cultivate her life force. At the age of 14, she earned her brown belt and placed 3rd at the Junior Olympics. Then a sudden and major injury sustained during training, shifted her gaze from sport to self healing.
It was through her own healing journey, that Jewel discovered her gifts, passion, and life’s work. She attended the University of Vermont, graduating in 2001 with a self-designed major in Environmental Studies. Her focus was on exploring the intimate connection between traditional healing, nature, and consciousness. After graduation she dove into the healing arts- beginning with yoga, meditation, and energy work. Her studies took her around the world: to India, Crete, England, Belgium, Canada, Mexico, Belize, and all over the USA. Returning back to the northeast, Jewel completed a certification in Massage Therapy from the Northeastern Institute of Whole Health in 2006. In 2010, she graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in Boston, with a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Jewel is a Nationally Board Certified Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, Bodyworker, Yoga Teacher, and Oneness Trainer. She has specialized training in Arvigo (R) Maya Abdominal Massage, with a focus on women’s health.
